My Definition of Love
I believe love is action. If someone truly loves you, it will be expressed through some type of action. That action could even be something as simple as offering a prayer for someone. After all prayer is one of the greatest gifts we can give to people. I’m in awe that Jesus expressed His love for us through prayer…
John 17:20-21, “20 My prayer is not for them alone. I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message, 21 that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me.”
Wow! As the song says, “Yes Jesus loves me!” He had us future believers on His mind, and prayed for us!
When we see kindness in action it causes us to feel loved by others. I realize that many people do many things but it may not all be in the name of love if their motives are not pure. It’s easy to fall prey to wrong motives in today’s world, but I’m thankful God can see the heart. He’ll have the final say on which actions are pure, and done in love, and which are not.
John 21:17 NIV, “The third time he said to him, “Simon son of John, do you love me?” Peter was hurt because Jesus asked him the third time, “Do you love me?” He said, “Lord, you know all things; you know that I love you.” Jesus said, “Feed my sheep.”
Jesus called Peter to take action in order to show love to Him. He said, “Feed my sheep.”
God set the ultimate example of love by sending His Son Jesus Christ to die for our sins. The unconditional love that He has for mankind, moved Him to take action and send His Son to the cross on our behalf.
I think our continuous prayer should be, “Lord teach me to understand and show love”. It’s a daily process and we will be ever learning, but we can trust God to teach us because He is love, so He knows exactly what true love should be.
